Deedat, Adam Hamilton, ERLC, and the Pope

Started today’s program off listening to a clip from The Deen Show presenting a 4 minute twisting of Matthew 7 by the late Ahmed Deedat. Then we listened to a few minutes of a sermon by Adam Hamilton at the 2018 Uniting Methodists Conference on having a “high view of Scripture” and yet accepting the profaning of marriage. Then we moved on to the ERLC “woops” video with the Roman Catholic vegan professor, and finished up looking at the Pope’s changing of the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding the death penalty.  Another wide ranging program!

Isaiah 44:24 and the LDS View of God, More on the Book of Abraham, Open Phones

Started off discussing Isaiah 44:24 and its relevance to Mormonism, then transitioned into a bit more on the Book of Abraham and its significance as a clear indication of Smith’s errors.  Then we looked at a few tweets from Rachel Held Evans and Kyle J. Howard in light of the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.  Then we went to the phones and took about six calls on a wide variety of topics.

Ireland, Abortion, Andy Stanley, & the Foundation of Truth

On today’s broadcast of the Dividing Line Pastor Jeff Durbin hosts while Dr. White is away. Jeff talks about the foundation of knowledge and truth. What is the essence of a truly Christian epistemology? How do we know anything at all? What is the basis of our truth claims as Christians? How should we approach the world on any issue where we have conflict?

Jeff has this conversation in the light of the recent vote to legalize abortion in Ireland and he interacts a bit with the message from Andy Stanley in which he Stanley argued that Christians ought to disconnect from the Old Testament revelation and worldview completely.

Sam Harris and Bart Ehrman Chat Christianity, Open Phones on Many Topics

Spent a little time on some comments made in an interview between Sam Harris and Bart Ehrman at the beginning of the program (after just a few minutes noting Jim Wallis’ extolling of James Cone) and then moved to calls. Spent way too much time trying to deal with a super technical call (I went back to it later when I was able to grab the relevant commentary from my system), and had to move past another call simply because I have not read the book being discussed and have stayed out of one particular theological controversy (shocking!).  Managed to get through the others though!  90 minutes.

Pope Francis’ Inclusivism and the Little Boy Reviewed, Open Phones, Many Topics

Started off looking carefully, and hopefully fairly, at the video of Pope Francis speaking to a young boy whose atheist father had died.  We examined the reality that Francis is an inclusivist, a person who clearly does not believe that explicit confession of faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for salvation.  We likewise considered other issues relating to Roman Catholicism, the papacy, and the topic of the lost, in relationship to the video.  Then we went to callers and covered a wide variety of topics, including one call on interacting with those who oppose our views on “critical race theory” and related topics to the recent MLK controversy.  We also took a call on whether Exodus 21 is relevant to the topic of abortion.  I have posted a short article I wrote on that topic here.
